O.J. Atogwe Signs With Redskins; Bob Sanders To Chargers

Safeties O.J. Atogwe and Bob Sanders were both released by their now-former teams two weeks ago tomorrow. Fittingly, both of them signed with new teams today.

Atogwe is headed to Washington to play for the Redskins. He inked a five-year deal worth $26 million and will now get to play alongside LaRon Landry. Last summer there had been talk that the Lions wanted to sign him to play alongside Louis Delmas, but his salary demands reportedly were too high. When he was released by the Rams a couple weeks ago, the idea of Detroit going after him was brought up, but it never went anywhere.

Sanders is headed out west, as he signed with the San Diego Chargers. The deal is for only one year, which is no surprise considering his past injury problems. It would be shocking if he actually made it through the whole year without suffering some kind of issue, but it's probably worth the risk for a team like San Diego. If he can stay healthy, that would be quite the steal for the Chargers.
